Initial New York 2018 Rankings Released

Dan Cevette
Director, New York

It is still extremely early, perhaps even premature, to be forecasting Class of 2018 prospects, especially since many of these rising sophomores haven’t even played a varsity game. Then again, with the recent acceleration of recruiting, high-level 2018 prospects are already making verbal commitments.

Over the course of the last year, we’ve seen an impressive amount of talented 2018 prospects, a few that will develop into national prospects.

With that said, we have released our initial 2018 rankings, a modest list of 30 prospects that have stood out among their peers. Certainly this list will change and evolve in time, as we know many players will grow, develop and mature. We also know that we likely haven’t seen many other 2018 prospects that may be deserving of this list.

However, we are confident that the players included in the list have extremely bright futures, barring injuries, of course.

Heading the initial list is SS Charles Mack (Williamsville East HS).  As a member of theCharles Mack Western Futures this past July (New York Games) Mack was the talk of the event. Very mature for his age with broad shoulder, yet overly athletic left side infielder put up some impressive measureables with a 100 MPH Exit Velo, 6.94 60 time and arm strength at 82 MPH but was flawless with his glove during the games and showed above average accuracy. The left-handed hitter can use the whole field and already has plus power to his pull side. Impressive display during his BP rounds. Will develop into a true next level 3B type both offensively and in the field. Already verbally committed to Clemson.
